My research concerns improving our understanding of Precambrian marine environments. I integrate sedimentology, stratigraphy and geochemistry in both field and lab work. Currently I am doing field work in Australia and Namibia. I generally study carbonates and I am particularly interested in primary mineralogy, reef development, marine cementation and syn-sedimentary dolomitisation. Much of my research centres around the “Precambrian dolomite problem”, as it now appears that marine dolomitisation was widespread in the unusual, anoxic oceans of the Precambrian.
